The elusive Beaver Dam Creek that Thomas Beatty and James Reed had land on is probably the creek I've recently discovered on the map. This is based on land deeds I've seen from the Beattys, Reeds, McCorkles and other families, which were all located in the "neighborhood." This Beaver Dam Creek lies about a mile south of the Marshall Power Plant in what is today Catawba County and just east of "Beattie Branch", which has to be more than coincidence. Of course, before 1842 it WAS in Lincoln County. There are or were a multitude of "Beaverdam" creeks in Piedmont, NC, but no other comes as close as this one to being the one in question.
